The Masters of Arts in Teaching, Curriculum and Instruction with area of expertise, Online and the Master of Arts in Teaching with Certification (EC-6 Generalist, 4-8 Generalist and Secondary Education), Online are designed to support existing teachers in advancing their expertise and to prepare future educators to teach in urban classrooms, respectively. The emphasis on urban teaching makes this graduate degree unique. To meet the special needs of all children in urban classrooms, students completing the MAT degree will demonstrate competency in the following areas of knowledge:

  • Characteristics and needs of learners in multicultural settings
  • Effective teaching practices that enhance student achievement for all students, regardless of socioeconomic status, ethnicity, or language spoken
  • Factors related to the development of effective teaching environments in urban classrooms
  • Classroom-based research methodology to support best instructional practices
  • Enriched understanding of academic content areas of language arts, social studies, mathematics, the natural sciences, English as a second language and educational technology.

Please note that the fully online delivery of our MAT programs forbids international students on an F1 visa from applying, as they can only complete one online course in a semester. The format of our degree requires students to enroll in a minimum of 6 hours on our scheduled rotation, both of which are online.
